Good Morning, First of all thank you very much in advance for your support... I have a problem with this product, I have plugged in an EliteBook HP, but unfortunatly when docked the VGA of the laptop could not be used. I would like to use the VGA embedded in the docking station AND at the same time the VGA of the laptop. Any solution? many thanks Solution already tried but still not working:1) I have already tried to move to the screen page on the control panel, but the monitor linked to the laptop VGA is not working (when the docking station is plugged in)2) sp65034.exe returns me an error "Faild to find synaptic mst dp hub ic" so I cannot install ithttp://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=ob_128239_1

I don't know which notebook model you have, but I'm finding random posts online about HP notebooks only being able to drive one analog monitor at a time, so you may be out of luck there. That docking station firmware update is for Displayport hub built into the docking station.  It can only be updated if you're connected to at least one monitor using displayport.  And it has nothing to do with analog port anyway, so it won't help you even if you could update the firmware.

Hi, I have a HP 2013 Ultra Slim Docking Station with Elitebook pro 840G1 but I can't display op either DP ports from the docking station when I connect my Dell 2516Q 4k monitor. When I plugin the DP cable directly on the laptop it works like a charm. Seem that the dockingstation doesn't support this monitor. Is there a firmware or driver I need to install to get this working? Thank you for the feedback and assistance. Jack

Hi MilanSan:

 

Thank you for your post. I will help any way I can!

 

I understand that you are having an issue with connecting the HP Elitebook 840 G1  to a docking station with external monitor.  I know you said it is new, so have you done all the Windows updates? You have the option to run the HP Support Assistant and or the built in Windows troubleshooter to aid in resolving issues and updating drivers.   Follow these steps to run the troubleshooter:


a. Press Windows key + C on your keyboard to show the Charms bar.
b. Type Troubleshooting and click Troubleshooting under Settings.
c. Now type Hardware Troubleshooter in the Search option.
d. Click on Hardware troubleshooter to run the troubleshooter.

 

If this has not resolved the issue, here is a link to the HP software and driver page for your computer. Drivers, Software & Firmware for HP EliteBook 840 G1 Notebook PC  You can manually check to ensure you have the latest drivers.

 

If you are still experiencing the difficulty you could do  a recovery, to  restore to factory. HP PCs - Performing an HP System Recovery (Windows 8).

If none of the above have resolved this, I suggest calling the HP technical support.

I have a ThinkPad X240 laptop with Windows 8.1 Enterprise x64 installed. Sound plays just fine from the laptop's speakers, and when I plug external speakers into the laptop's 3.5mm audio port they work just fine too.But...when the laptop is docked in my Ultra Dock 90W docking station and the external speakers cable is plugged into the dock's audio port, no sound is heard. If I'm playing music through the laptop's speakers, as soon as I plug a cable into the dock's audio port no sound is heard. I can still use the laptop's audio port to connect external speakers, but that defeats the object of having an audio port on the Ultra Dock.The Ultra Dock has (I believe) the latest firmware installed (version 2.22.000) and I have the latest audio drivers installed: in Device Manager > Sound, video and game controllers > Realtek High Definition Audio > Driver version is 6.0.1.7188 which is the latest available from Lenovo Support downloads.What do I need to do to get the Ultra Dock's audio port working?Kind regards,/Neil PS.

Have new Ultraslim Docking Station 2013 and two VGA-to-Displayport adapters for my two older monitors.  If I don't dock the laptop (Elitebook 745 G3) and plug either of the monitors into the VGA port (without the adapters) directly to the laptop, the monitors both work.  If I plug one of the monitors into the VGA port on the docking station and dock the laptop, the monitors will both work (one at a time since only one VGA port on docking station).  However, if I use either or both of the DisplayPort ports (using the VGA to Displayport adapters) on the docking station they don't work.  Anyone able to provide some guidance?

When trying to use a Displayport to VGA or a Displayport to DVI cable to connect from an HP 2013 Ultraslim Docking station to an external display, the display comes up with no signal and goes to sleep. Connecting with a VGA cable, it works fine. We were able to replicate this issue with multiple new, fresh out of the box docking stations. The issue happens on any monitors that we connect, even ones that work with other docks. It seems to be the Intel Displayport Topology is picking up the display and making it so that the displayport cannot be activated without connecting 3 monitors.  The older version of the Ultraslim Docking station that only had 1 displayport seems to work just fine, it's just the newer 2013 version that has 2 displayports that has this issue.  Does anyone know if there is any newer firmware or where I can disable/stop the Displayport Topology from picking up this one monitor and trying to make it 3 displays? If not, we're probably going to have to go back to USB adapters and those are no fun. Thanks,Andrew System info:HP Elitebook 840 G1, G2, and G3 (Issue has occured with all 3 models.)Windows 7 Enterprise x64HP 2013 Ultraslim Docking StationDock Firmware 2.30Updated Graphics, Chipset and USB drivers to latest version from HP's website.

Hi,Wondering if it is possible to plug a set of standard iPhone earphones (that have an in-line mic) into an HP 2013 UltraSlim Docking Station. The hope is that the earphones will allow for both audio out from the laptop and microphone recording into the laptop. The iPhone earphones work perfectly this way when plugged into the laptop jack. When I plug the earphones into the line-out of the dock they work well (can listen to music), but the microhpone doesn't work when plugged into the line-in of the dock. My idea is to use something like this http://www.cablechick.com.au/cables/avencore-4-pole-trrs-to-35mm-stereo-mic-splitter-cable-female-to...or this https://www.pccasegear.com/products/32027/audio-splitter-cable-female-3-5mm-to-2-x-male-3-5mm but my concerns are this http://h20565.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?sp4ts.oid=1849381&docId=emr_na-c04352894&docLocale... Does anyone have any advice?

Hi!
I have a Latitude E7740 that runs Ubuntu Xenial (16.04). I dock it to a "Dell EURO2 Advanced E-port II" docking station. 
If I boot it in the docking station, everything works fine, and I find all my two DVI-connected monitors. 
However, if I undock, then put it into the dock again while running, it fails to enable the screens. I'm using a script called autorandr for switching between display modes - it uses xrandr. It tries to run:
xrandr --output DP1-1 --gamma 1.0:1.0:1.0 --mode 1920x1200 --panning 0x0 --pos 0x0 --rate 59.95 --reflect normal --rotate normal --output DP1-2 --gamma 1.0:1.0:1.0 --mode 1920x1200 --panning 0x0 --pos 1920x0 --rate 59.95 --reflect normal --rotate normal
But the X server responds with:
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)  Major opcode of failed request: 140 (RANDR)  Minor opcode of failed request: 21 (RRSetCrtcConfig)  Serial number of failed request: 48  Current serial number in output stream: 48
Running this exact command after booting in the dock is doing the right thing, but after undocking then docking, it doesn't work.
Any ideas here? I have updated to the latest BIOS version.

I would hold down the power button trying to force a reboot and nothing. I disconnected eveything thing, unplugged it and re-plugged ... nothing. I unplugged everything again and in desperation took out the battery and put in back in and bingo it started up. I re-hooked everything and went on my merry way. Sometime later, bang it happens again. I tried the same corrections and they worked. The THIRD time this happend I left OFF the DOCKING STATION and it has not happened again.

Any ideas? Does Vista have docking station issues? Is this a lousy docking station? Does anyone recommend a good docking station. I really want a docking station.

Thanks!

The PC in question is a Dell Latitude D620. When off the docking station, the screen display is normal, however when it's hot docked, or cold booted from the dock, the screen displays only 1/4 of the screen, however it shows the entire image. It's hard to put into words for me, it's displaying the entire desktop, same resolution, however the image its self is maybe 4 inches. I did fix this problem on my laptop by updating drivers, however I would have to explain this process over the phone as I am a support guy, and if it doesn't work, then I'm back to the beginning. Has anyone else experienced this, or am I the only one with the off the wall calls..

I have noticed a continuing problem with using our Pro Book 640 laptops and Elite Book 8460 and 8470s, when docked in docking stations and sharing keyboard, video and mouse through Belkin 2-port KVM switches.  The problem is that the keyboard and mouse will sometimes just quit responding, although the lights are on, indicating they are connected.  A number of techniques are tried to get the functionality back, including uplugging power from the KVM and plugging it back in, unplugging the keyboard and mouse from the KVM, and rebooting the laptop. Any one of these may or may not solve the issue.  My question is, has anyone else experienced similar issues when using docking stations in combination with a KVM? Thank you.TJfromVA

Hey all-

I have a Dell Latitude D800 that I use with a docking station. Everything has been working but occasionally when I put the laptop into the docking station and power up, the external monitor will not come on unless I open the lid of my laptop. When I close the lid of my laptop, the system goes to standby and the external monitor goes out. I went into the power options and changed the option for when the laptop is closed to "Do Nothing". I would like to be be able to keep it on Standby like it had been working originally. Any ideas why this may be occurring?
 

A:Problem with Laptop and Docking Station

standby mode is known to cause system issues (instability, currupt files, screwed up settings). I wouldn't use standby anymore if I were you.

To get your old settings back in order, run system restore and choose a restore point prior to when the issue started happening. (then you should disable standby mode so that that doesn't happen again)

also... check your display settings, there may be an option for primary monitor default when docked.

I got this message on my computer right before it froze and shut down:

"You have inserted a module into the docking stations modular bay, but this module is not supported by your docking station... should remove now.." Not sure how it ended, didn't write the whole thing down and then it went of the screen and everything was frozen.

Now when I turn it on it will run for a while but then freezes and after a long while shots off. If I try to turn it on soon after, it wont even start, the light just comes, it starts but then shuts down.

Its a Dell Latitude D510 and I have XP, can anyone help? That message means nothing to me, I don't know what a module, docking bay or station is and I haven't inserted anything in a long time.

Hi,

Got a weird one.

I had an old Toshiba t900 which died recently. it was on a small network and was also connected a HP Laserjet 6P/MP postscript printer. Most printing was done via the network to this printer. the printer was actually installed as a laserjet 6L because otherwise the driver sent everything via postscript with took for ever (well graphics did) and frequently failed with a "not enough memory error"

I have replaced this with a Tecra M10 (no parallel port) and a docking station which has a parallel port.

I did install the laserjet 6P/MP postscript driver and it all worked fine (except of course for the speed and memory problems mentioned above).

I then deleted the 6P/MP device and installed the printer as a 6L (as before) but when I tried to print a test page it did not send anything to the printer and reports a device error.

Ive uninstalled, re-installed, rebooted etc but made no impact. The only thing that is slightly odd is that after deleting the devices and rebooting the sometimes reappear suggesting maybe I have not got rid of them completely

If I start from scratch (no printer visible) and install the printer (replace current driver) as a 6MP it seems to install OK (except that Under printer->Properties, the panel is blank)

But when I print a test page, nothing happens (no lights flash on the printer) and a yellow triangle appears. The print queue simply says error - printing

Any suggests as to what I need to do to get this fixe... Read more

A:Printing problem through docking station to LPT1

OK it was tedious but I got there.

Delete all printers and keep deleting and rebooting until they have all gone (there must be an easier way?)
Plug in the printer and reboot the computer so it installs OK as 6P/6MP Postscript
Check it does actually work!!

Go to devices and printers
Take the installed working 6P/6MP Postscript
Right click, Printing properties
Advanced
Select a driver from the drop down list (6MP in my case) I guess these drivers were there from previous efforts so if the right driver is not there you may have to install it and then start from the beginning

Change the share name to avoid confusion
Go to the other PC
Install a network printer
Select the one you have just renamed
Test it and Message 'Unable to access printer'!! b*g*e*!!

Probably some garbage left over from previous efforts (now deleted)so
Reboot and try again.
Now it works.:-)

And now perhaps I can get on and do something useful!!

Hi guys,

i am experiencing some problems with the 2 mentioned laptops.

The 1st one is:
I bought a used 7020 to replace the broken screen of 7200. After disassembled the screen, I noticed that the connectors have the same number of wires, but one of the terminal of the 7200's screen has a larger socket. "no problem" I thought, and with patience I picked up the cable of the 7020 adapter an put it into the 7200.
But when i turned it on i saw only colored lines and squares :S :S
If you want i can provide the PN, if it could help...Even if i check the compatibility before order.

2nd problem:
Portege 7200 recognize correctly the docking station, while the 7020 emit some beeps before boot, and obviously it doesn't work with him. I checked on toshiba's site and the dock would be totally compatible!

And for last... Where can i find bios updates?

Sorry for my bad english, i hope that someone could help me!

regards,
Francesco

A:Compatibility problem with Portege 7020 / 7200 CT display & docking station

Hello Francesco

You will be really lucky if anyone here can help you with these old notebook models. I am pretty sure they are about 10 years old.
Without maintenance manuals and enough knowledge is not easy to help you with this display replacement.

This issue with docking station can be related to defective hardware. Both notebooks are so similar and both of them can be used with this docking station. How you can be sure hardware is top on 7020?

BIOS updates are available on http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_bios.jsp but as I can see for Portege 7000 there is no BIOS update, just for 7020.

If you want you can contact nearest Toshiba service provider. they have maintenance manuals for this old notebooks and they can help you offering exact info about parts you need.

The Portge M780 supports 1 x Ultra Slim SelectBay so you should be able to get such device from a Toshiba Authorized service partner.

Hello,   I have two questions that perhaps somebody might help me with regarding the HP Compaq 7600 Ultra Slim (Base) computer. Quesition 1: The motherboard has three memory slots instead of 4, does this mean that the memory can be only upgraded to 3 gig s? I currentlly have three 512  memory chips for total of 1.5 Gig, but I would like to upgrade to the maximun which I believe is 4 gig. (I had tried using two 1 gig  chips and 512, but they did not work because the 1 gig were 6400's.) Question 2: I tried various ways to install a PCI-E video card but I do see how it will fit. The back panel had a scsi interface inside a PCI riser card. I removed the SCSI card, but no matter how I tried I do not see how the card will fit. Doesn't any body have picture as to how it must be inserted ? Thank you

File Transfer - Help Wanted

It will be from the old computer running Windows XP to a new computer running Windows 7.

The old computer has files which I have accumulated over a number of years, it is a mixture of those used rarely, used frequently and junk.

The chances are some of the files will never be used again, but they just might be wanted at some future date. I am therefore reluctant to scrap anything. Neither do I want to put a lot of possibly unnecessary files on the new computer.

I need to be able to search the old hard drive and recover a file if it is wanted.

The old computer is about 9 years old and is slow and may not be worth upgrading.

I now have two computers and one monitor and I am not sure what would be the best route.

I have not used a Docking Station before but thought this could be a possibility, on Amazon I found:

I have two users who both Dell Latitude laptop computers. When they power up the computers, they are able to set their graphics to the desired level (1280x760). If they power up the computers while on a docking station they are able to set the graphics to a different level (1024X768) and this works fine.

The problem they have is if the machine is already powered on (1280x760) and the dock the system, the graphics on the external monitor will go to 800x600, totally disregarding what they had set the graphics for. They are able to change it back and it is fine again.

Why does this only occur when the machine is powered on already and they are trying to dock it? Is there some setting that needs to be changed?

Hi, I have a ProBook 6470b and a 640 G1 that I use with a HP 2012 90W docking station at home.  Just recently I've noticed that when I shut down the notebook as the power switches off the cooling fan starts at quite high speed and will run continuously until either the notebook is removed from the dock, or turned back on. If you remove the notebook and re-dock it straight away the while the fan is running after shutdown the fan will stop and restart.  If you undock one notebook when the fan is running as above, dock the other one, then swap them back again the fan does not restart, and also when you first dock the notebook while sleeping or powered down the fan does not start. Is there something that I have set in error to cause this behaviour?  It doesn't seem to affect the operation of the dock.  The change seems to have started since changing my old VGA monitor for one connected using the DVI-D port.  The other monitor is connected by Display Port. I have tried cleaning the connectors on both the dock and the notebooks.  Any help is appreciated.

While in the docking station, the hp usb ports work fine, only the usb ports on the docking station are out of order.

I bought an extra docking station for my EliteBook 745 G3. It was advertised as a D9Y32AA but is really a D9Y32UT. Googled it and most are saying it's the same but one difference I see is that the AC adapter plugin has a larger plugin to the dock than the one I got with the computer. Didn't see that mentioned elsewhere. Is it ok to use the dock with the different plugin?

Just wondering if there are any hidden capabilities inherent in the device that I might exploit. I am not considered a "power user" though I do use most of the MS Office Apps to include PowerPoint, Outlook, Excel and Word. Also, will turning off the power at the Docking Station keep the computer's internal battery from charging? Is there danger in the battery being damaged by staying connected to the docking station power too long? Thanks for your thoughts, CW

Even though I received some wonderful help from some of you recently, I couldn't get rid of a virus on an older computer. I've decided to buy an HD docking station and hopefully transfer some of my needed and wanted files to another HD. This HD is brand new with nothing on it. Will I be able to transfer files to it if it doesn't have an operating system?

I'm definitely not going to do a mass transfer, I'll pick and chose .jpgs, videos and documents. No .exe programs what-so-ever.

Will this way be safe to keep the pesky virus on the old PC? Once I have everything I want off the old PC, I'll give it a complete restore with the original Windows.

I'd appreciate any help.

Thank you
Tony

A:Need info on HD docking station

Hello Tony

Do you remember the name of the virus and where it was...

What is or was the name of the Anti-virus on the computer that has the virus.

Do you have malwarebytes if not I would download it on the old system and run a full scan as it can pick up and delete virus's that others miss, here is the link and chose the free version..
Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download
Try and get rid of the virus this way and then transfer the items you want...

I'm wanting a docking station for my HP Envy laptop that will charge my laptop as well. Is there such a device? I recently purchase a Targus USB dock and it doesn't reconginise my monitor nor does it charge my laptop so I still have to take my charger in and out as well as my monitor. Very annoying. Doesn anyone have any suggestions?

I need to find a compatible docking station for my notebook.  Any suggestions? Thanks

Yes HP no longer makes true "docking stations" for its consumer laptops. A docking station is a snap-down platform that provides power to the laptop and replicates ports and allows for expansion such as additional hard drives, etc. Best you can do is to use a USB 3.0 "port replicator" many of which come with video and all the ports you could want but do not power the laptop. You still need to connect an AC adapter directly to the laptop to use the port replicator.  There are lots of these on the market. HP makes one and others do, too. Post back if you need any help. Expect to pay around $100 +/- for one with video. https://www.amazon.com/HP-3005PR-USB-Port-Replicator/dp/B008KMDVPQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1475009377... If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

The network card (Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet) on the docking station for my Z60m went out (does not show link at all, always shows unplugged). I tried removing/reinstalling with the most recent driver, but no luck. Is there any way to active the internal NIC while plugged into the docking station? That would at least give me a work around, although slightly inconvienant. Thanks.

At my work, I have a laptop that is hooked to a docking station. I've only been here for a little while, so yesterday was the second time that I undocked it. The first time, I did not use a power cord when I undocked it. It worked fine when out of the station. I used a power cord the second time. Before I left work, I put it back in the docking station, and I left. This morning, the laptop wouldn't start (in the docking station). I removed it from the station and tried to start it without the station. It still wouldn't start. Finally, I used the power cord and it began charging and would also start. After a while, I tried putting it back in the docking station, but it still would not charge. So right now, I am undocked and charging with the power cord.

Can anyone help me with this?

also, everything else is in working order when plugged into the docking station. The mouse, keyboard, internet, and monitor work fine. The only problem is the charging.
